The Maple Hill Hop 27

Maple Hill Hop

It's Earth Day on 
The Maple Hill Hop!

We're celebrating by joining a garden tour later today.

Do something great for Mother Earth!

C'mon and share what's happening outside
on your piece of the planet!

Remember the deal I got on all of these French marigolds last weekend?
They were installed recently.

Some were added as a border along one of the curves in the back bed.

Some were happy to join the beautyberry.
I love the pop of color.

The beautyberry will soon be loaded with deep magenta buds.

Elsewhere in the garden,
I decided to add a bit of whimsy.
The blooms were used to form an "H", for our last name.

Another bunch was used to fashion a "C" especially for Lil' Guy.
It gave me the idea of  creating an alphabet garden
when we move to our property up north.
Wouldn't that be fun to have kids go to find 
their initials in the garden?
Or to take it farther, spell inspiring words like
"LOVE", "FAITH", or "SMILE" with blooms.
It would be a great addition to our therapeutic farm.

let's HOP!
